30 Years Ago Today

30 years ago today Margaret Thatcher became Prime Minister of Great Britain.

Today she continues to polarise popular opinion and even if you were too young to remember much of her time in office (as I was) you more than likely still have some strong ideas about her.

For my part I see her as a courageous women who operated from convictions utterly alien to many politicians today. She put up a fight and won most of the time. She took our country by the reigns and proved that even a weak country with a strong leader can make a difference on the world stage. Britain, and the world, is the better for her. Her duty is an example to me, an inspiration, and a challenge.

For more on this may I recommend Boris Johnson’s thoughts.
